'J'ai beaucoup écrit dans ma jeunesse : mais rien qui me parût valable. J'avais environ trente ans quand j'osai proposer à des éditeurs le livre que j'appelai Primauté du spirituel, détournant ironiquement le titre d'un essai alors célèbre de Maritain.
J'avais mis beaucoup de moi-même dans cet ouvrage. J'étais en révolte contre le spiritualisme qui m'avait longtemps opprimée et je voulais exprimer ce dégoût à travers l'histoire de jeunes femmes que je connaissais et qui en avaient été les victimes plus ou moins consentantes. J'ai beaucoup joué sur l. a. mauvaise foi qui m'en paraissait inséparable. Ainsi fus-je amenée à los angeles difficile tentative de faire entendre les voix – et les silences – du mensonge. Comme beaucoup plus tard dans los angeles femme rompue, j'ai usé du langage pour dissimuler los angeles vérité.
C'est, somme toute, un roman d'apprentissage où s'ébauchent beaucoup des thèmes que j'ai repris par l. a. suite. Je lui garde une sympathie que j'aimerais voir partagée.'
Simone de Beauvoir écrivit ce most effective livre, qui resta longtemps inédit, de 1935 à 1937.
